My life began right around the time the internet was invented. While growing up I enjoyed building cool stuff with LEGO, playing SimCity, and riding my scooter around the neighborhood.
Around the age of 13 I started to develop an interest in design. When I got to high school I grew this interest into somewhat of a talent after I took several art and design classes. It was also around this time when I started to learn how to code websites.
After graduating from high school I attended Huntington University as a design student. It was here where I continued to grow my skills as a designer through my classes while also teaching myself how to code websites. In 2011 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and Philosophy.
Since then I’ve worked full time at a few different places in the city of Chicago. In 2011 I married my high school sweetheart, Krista. On my free time I enjoy playing Halo and drinking good beer.
The best skill you can have is the ability to not only understand how to do something, but to understand why it works.
